SU Kai Leung Ray
The University of Hong Kong
Dr Ray Su is associate professor in structural engineering at the University of Hong Kong. His current research interests lie in the development of new theories suitable for seismic assessment and design of concrete and masonry structures, strengthening concrete members using external steel plates, fracture analysis of MEE materials and evaluation of fracture properties of concrete and graphite. Since 2000, he has been awarded 7 research grants on fracture mechanics, seismic behaviour and strengthening of concrete structures from the HK Research Grants Council. He has authored and co-authored more than 110 SCI cited journal papers and 80 conference papers. His research articles have been independently cited over 1600 times in top international journals and have achieved an h-index of 20 (Google Scholar 9/2016). He is an editorial panel member for the Journal of Applied Mathematics, Structural Engineering and Mechanics, Advances in Concrete Construction, among others. He is an honorary secretary of The Structural Discipline, The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers and was an honorary Treasurer for The Institution of Structural Engineers (Hong Kong Branch).
